Stupid, but important question of the day

I'm known for absolutely stupid questions. The kind that have my husband staring at me in horror as he realizes that he did indeed marry a person that has no problem "going there" wherever there is (it's usually the place that has everyone curled up in the fetal position and me going, "What? It's a legitimate question!").

So anyways, part of the blame for this is going to Keidra. She's the one who got me into the following conversation. The backstory is that we're discussing the Star Wars Christmas special:
Keidra: yeah, Chewie's dad gets a special gift from ...I think Ed Asner, and it's Dianne Carroll moaning and talking about how hot he is.
Viv: Is that beastilty? I mean, Chewie seems sentient and humanoid.
Keidra: It is pretty damn close to beastiality, if you ask me. Wookies growl like dogs. That's not humanoid.
Viv: Yeah, but that's a separate language. I mean, Wookies are intelligent creatures. They're humanoid.....
Keidra: I know, they are intelligent and humanoid. They are also big-ass dogs.
Viv: OK, I have a question for you then: Is sex with an Elf fine?
Keidra: they are not human, but not dogs either. So yes, it's fine
Viv: But I mean, a Wookiee, while hairy is intelligent and has its own language. I mean, I'm not going to jump a wookiee if I meet one, but still...

And so on and so forth. So in the interest of science *snerk*, I posed the question, "Is sex with a Wookiee beastality?" to many people -- my coworkers included (who barely bat an eye anymore with these questions). Most people (out of the dozen or so I talked to) said it was beastality.

"Anything that hairy -- it's beastality," one coworker said.

So in the interest of expanding my sampling group, I pose the question online: Is sex with a wookiee beastality and why?

Discuss.

Obviously you have a real talent for asking uncomfortable questions. Have you considered expanding this ability in the political or religious arenas? In response to your question however, one must first define the term "beastiality" Once ths is accomplished the answer becomes fairly simple. If your definition is sex outside your own species then certainly sex with a wookie qualifies. However, you seem to lean toward levels of thought and organization as qualifiers as well. The wookie is both sentient, a tool maker and user, has established a language and has certain traditions. All of these things mirror human behavior, therefore sex with a wookie could be considered consentual adult behavior and within the norms we previously established. Nest ce pas?

I don't get why everyone has a problem with this. Everyone cheered on cpt. kirk for sleeping with that green lady, no one is calling that beastality. If a wookiee wants to settle down with a fine looking earth girl thats his and her buisness. The simple fact that they can shoot a gun and have conversations takes them out of the 'beast' catagory, maybe not the alien one but the beast one for sure. You people are just haters of hairy people and aliens thats all.

Jesus Christ! Remember, *you* started this, dude! For the last time: Wookiee=Dog=Nasty! Over and out.

Okay, well, here's a question along those same lines: if in "Beauty and the Beast", Belle had gotten it on with the Beast while he was still in his "Beast" form, would THAT be considered beastiality?

This question is blowing my mind, man!
